Last month parents visited school classrooms to celebrate their scholars and were impressed by what their kids have done in just two short months. During writing workshop students have been learning and applying different writing skills and strategies – including editing and peer review.
Ms.Smith’s first grade class had its first publishing party on Friday October 19th! The children wrote about “small moments.” The writing was fantastic – full of detail and thoughtful spelling. The best part (besides all the yummy treats!) was seeing the support the adults gave not only to their own child but to every child in the classroom. Everyone wrote heartwarming comments about each students’ writing. A super successful first celebration. – Holly, 1-204 parent
